About Us

Our mission: To let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are.

There’s nothing wrong with you because you’re quiet. You’re not broken because you like spending time alone.

 About Our Founder

Jenn Granneman started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as her personal blog. Discovering she is an introvert changed her life, and she didn’t want other introverts to feel broken like she had for so long. Her first book, The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World, will be out August of 2017.

Today, Introvert, Dear is less of a blog and more of a publishing platform. It brings together thousands of introvert voices from all over the world. Jenn’s words have been featured on The Huffington Post, The MuseQuiet Revolution, The Mighty, Upworthy, Thought Catalog, and Personality Hacker.

You can follow Jenn on Facebook to get personal updates from her.

How to Support Our Mission

It takes time and money to run a major website. We could clog up this site with lots of ads, but we want it to remain a calm, peaceful place for introverts and HSPs — so our policy is to keep ads at a minimum. That’s why we need help from readers to keep running. You can help us by:

  • Becoming a patron. Patrons give a few dollars each month, and it all adds up.
  • Shopping on Amazon, using this link: http://amzn.to/2goYHfh. A small portion of your purchase goes toward Introvert, Dear.
  • Sharing articles on social media that resonate with you. We’re always hoping new people will discover our site.
  • Purchasing products from our affiliates, like Personality Hacker, Quistic, Amazon, and others. A portion of your purchase goes toward Introvert, Dear.
  • Buy our grown-up coloring book. Introvert Dreams is the first coloring book with an introvert theme.

When you support us, you’re supporting the introvert cause.

We’re incredibly thankful to our patrons who support us. This month, they are:
